Couple brutally attacked in their own home

Criminals brutally attacked a couple in their own home in the Limburg municipality of Bilzen on Friday. The violent home invasion took place at a house on the Batterijstraat. 

Three men used force to break into the house via the front door on Friday evening. In the scuffle that followed both those present in the house, a married couple, were injured.

The police were called and they were able to detain the culprits in the Herbebamstraat thanks to the help of a number of local residents.

The Bilzen Local Police Service called in assistance from the neighbouring Lanaken-Maasmechelen Local Police Service to help them arrest the home invaders. The three suspects will appear before an Examining Magistrate. The Judicial Authorities are requesting that they remain in custody.
